The Great Kindness Challenge - Friday, 1/20-Monday, 1/23

Staff and students will be participating in the GREAT KINDNESS CHALLENGE starting today and into next week, thru Monday, January 23rd. Please consider joining in completing as many acts of kindness as possible during this time period. We hope it will be contagious! As a school community, we want to generate an energy of kindness and caring on campus. Students will be challenged to seek out ways to complete acts of kindness throughout the week.

K-2 students are challenged to complete at least
8 acts of kindness
3-5 students are challenged to complete at least 30 acts of kindness

HOW: Kindness Checklists will be in Friday bags today. They are also attached. Help your child select acts of kindness that he/she finds suitable. Do what you can to support your child as they work to complete acts of kindness.

WHEN: Friday, 1/20 thru Monday, 1/23 - children can be completing acts of kindness anywhere that they are. We encourage children to keep their checklists with them. We will have extras in the office and you'll see them attached to this email so you can print an extra as well. A Cornell Parent that works for Peaceable Kingdom. Their staff will be joining us during the week to add to our Noontime Activities with cooperative games for children to play at lunch. We want to thank them for bringing this idea to Cornell. It came at just the right time for our staff as we had been hoping to expand on our spirit of kindness and caring this month to launch 2017.

Lastly, we are encouraging 100% schoolwide participation. I've challenged all of our students to participate. If everyone is able to participate and turn their forms in by Monday, January 23rd. I have promised the student body that I will plan a day to work from the roof of Cornell above the Multi-Purpose Room. I can't wait to see everyone meet my challenge and get up on that roof!

Choose Kind!
